WP 3.0 custom menu in multisite

My blog is a multisite with each section of the site having different colours and header images. The top menu above the header image is created with the WP custom menu.

What I want to achieve is for this menu to be constant across all my subsite so that I don't have to recreate each menu manually each time I update something or add a new subsite.

Apparently it can be done by adding two lines of code immediately before and immediately after the nav bar code in header.php.

I found this in the WordPress forum :

just before the nav bar code put
<?php switch_to_blog(1); ?>
right after the navbar code put
<?php restore_current_blog(); ?>
then it will always show the pages from Blog #1

and it worked for the person who asked the question with the theme they were using.

I am not sure where to place this code in Ata theme files as header.php calls to the functions in the new wp menu file to display the menu.

I have tried inserting this code in several different places to no avail. A couple of those attempts "broke" my blog lol.

Does anyone know how to implement this ? Maybe it's a good one for Flynn to add to the wish list for the next upgrade as more and more users(and clients) are wanting to implement similar features with multisite.

you could try adding them before and after line 16 of bfa_header_config.php
no guarantees - I haven't tried it and I don't see why on a multi site you would want the other sites to have the first sites menu. That means that if you create a page in site 2, there will not be a link to in.

But, I'm sure you have your reasons, so give it a try.

I already tried that. That's what broke the site . If you have a look at the site(the link is in my profile), you will understand why I want the subsites to have the same top menu. It is a custom menu that is the main nav for the site.

The second menu shows the categories(not a custom menu) of each subsite and any other nav links that I need I put in the sidebar using either tags or the blogroll. A bit like other major sites you see where the main nav is at the top.
